This is a standard piece in solo trumpet repertoire that is used on countless festivals and competitions. Ropartz was a French composer who studied with CÃ©sar Franck. The terrific contrast between the slow lyrical playing and the bright fanfares makes this piece a great one for demonstrating everything the trumpet can do.
The original was scored for cornet and piano and this arrangement for band allows for a wider range of timbres in the accompaniment.
Solo with ensemble.
